Schedule of public tours released by Joint Forces Training Base

Joint Forces Training Base (JFTB) is pleased to announce its 2019 public base tour program.

Dates include February 21, May 16, August 16 and November 21. Tours are scheduled on Thursday afternoons and get underway at 1 p.m. from the installation’s Military and Veterans Services Center (Building 244) located just inside the JFTB main gate on Lexington Drive. Participants taking the tour should plan for approximately three hours.

The fully-guided bus tour includes an introduction and historical overview of the base – highlighting its current state and federal missions. Featured stops include the 40th Infantry Division Headquarters, Los Alamitos Army Airfield Base Operations – including an up-close look at a California Army National Guard UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter — plus an overview of the airfield crash-rescue mission and equipment display presented by the JFTB Fire Department.

Each tour is limited to 45 participants. There is no admission fee and participants will receive a group photo as a souvenir of their visit.

Reservations for the February tour can be made by sending an e-mail to the JFTB Public Affairs Officer at [email protected] E-mails must include full name, address (including zip code), phone number, e-mail address and California driver’s license number for each participant – maximum of three people per group unless pre-approved by the public affairs officer.

Due to enhanced force protection requirements, all participants must be pre-registered and will be required to show current government-issued photo identification to the guard at the main gate for access to the installation.
